In this paper, we report the development of a side-hole photonic-crystal fiber (SH-PCF) based dual-environment pressure sensor. SH-PCF sensitivity to pressure variations was measured and compared to simulated data. SH-PCF sensitivity was found to be 2.8 times higher than the one presented by the commercial PM-1550-01 fiber. For probing two environments, one spliced two sections of the studied SH-PCF with different lengths in a solc-filter-like configuration. Individual responses of the first and second fiber can be independently obtained in this setup. Therefore, making use of SH-PCF sensitivity to pressure variations, a pressure sensor for dual environment monitoring is build up.
